As a teenager, she lived in Beijing and Thailand, before moving back to Sydney. There she lived between regional Jindabyne and the coastal beachside of Dolls Point. In 2018 she put a little song called ‘Be’ on triple j Unearthed, signed a worldwide record deal, got herself a management team and is now ready to release her first body of music at the age of 19. A bold introduction to merci, mercy’s low key but utterly compelling nature, ‘Fucked Myself Up’ is a soon-to-be festival favourite, jam-packed with iconic lines and is the first taste from an exciting young Australian artist. Her honest, intimate storytelling exudes everyday life’s drama, exuberance and regret and is layered over music with attitude.
